We have dined here for years and years. We always go back because we know we will always be given excellent service, food and wine.
The staff are very attentive. I would like to mention the lady that is in charge of the restaurant and I presume the hotel. She has worked/served there for years and she has excellent customer relations, which I think come naturally to her as she is a true lady. Thanks.
The food is very nice. I'm never disappointed by it. I'm a big bloke but I'm always stuffed when I leave, which says they have the portion sizes just right. You can always leave some, hmmm perhaps I should...
It has changed a bit in the restaurant but for the better. The lighting is more subtle than it used to be, which was too bright in days gone by but that never dulled my enjoyment.
The bar is well stocked with nice wine and there is a vast selection of spirits to choose from. My only gripe is the draught beers on offer. I am fussy though, maybe it's just me but I don't like Carlsberg or Tetleys. Perhaps they could have a rotating guest ale along with a more premium lager on offer? Just a thought.
Will I be returning? Well I have been for years.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Nestling alongside the tranquil River Derwent lies Loftsome Bridge Coaching House. Dating back to 1782, the Coaching Inn as it was known, offered food and shelter to travellers for more than a century. It then became a working farm and guest house. After several years of painstaking restoration, we would like to continue the tradition and offer food and accommodation to the twenty first century traveller. ... more less
